CHORDS

Only the upper three strings are used in the guitar accompaniment, which
supports the intimate atmosphere of the demo. If you want to keep that
use the voicings suggested here. Regular shapes also work well, of course.

[Verse]
[ D ]             Em
  Got a velveteen doll
G                          A
Bought her at the five–and–ten
D                     Em
Cute little velveteen doll

I’ll never be alone again


[Bridge]
           D        F#        G *
I keep her under my pillow at ni-ight
  A              G          D
I keep her in my pocket all day-ay
    D                F#      G *
And though she can’t hold me ti-ight
       A          G    D
She’ll never ever run away


[Chorus]

Velveteen doll, oh yeah

I got a velveteen doll

She’s the only one for me
  G                  A
A real doll broke my heart
  D                     Em
A rag doll’s better you see

 ‘Cause if she ever falls apart


[Bridge]
     D             F#                 G *
I’ll put her back again and she’ll be good as new
    A               G   D
And ev’rything will be OK
    D             F#        G *
But if I have the chance to make up with you
     A               G     D
I’ll throw my little doll away

Velveteen doll, oh yeah

Velveteen doll, mh-mh
D
Velveteen doll, oh yeah
